Letters to the Museum

Good Day

I was searching the internet for a song from my childhood, called "gollywog" (completely unaware of the racial implications) when I came upon your site.

I couldn't stop looking at these hateful caricatures. I want to compliment you on an informative and eye-opening site; the dissection of stereotypes and the charting of their history shows how society must rationalize its brutality and hatred by dehumanizing its victims. I must tell you that this site has brought me to tears.

I just wanted to compliment you,

Thanks,

AD
